Publisher's Summary

A broken boy on the path to destruction. A scarred girl without direction. A love story carved in secrets, inked with pain, and sealed with a lie.

Grace Shaw and West St. Claire are arctic opposites. She is the strange girl from the food truck. He is the mysterious underground fighter who stormed into her sleepy Texan college town on his motorcycle one day and has been wreaking havoc since. She is invisible to the world. He is the town’s beloved bad boy. She is a reject. He is trouble.

When West thrusts himself into Grace’s quiet life, she scrambles to figure out if he is her happily-ever-after or tragic ending. But the harder she pushes him away, the more he pulls her out of her shell.

Grace doesn’t know much about anything beyond her town’s limits, but she does know this: She is falling in love with the hottest guy in Sheridan U. And when you play with fire - you ought to get burned.

"Ill walk through fire for you."

L.S. Shen is an amazing author that creates world that devour you. She does it again with this one. Playing with Fire is a Small town, Friends to Lovers standalone story. Grace and West Both trying to survive life struggling with their own demons. Grace grew up popular and beautiful with dreams of being on stage. Drama, plays, acting is her passion. Until she went through a traumatic event that left her more of a loner, feeling ugly and giving up on her dreams. She Works at the taco truck with her best friend. West is a college play boy, bad boy, master of one night stands and undefeated underground fighter. He grew up running and hiding from his traumatic event he lived through only he had no where to run to or non where to go. Feeling the need to support his family he will do anything to help them out. Through fighting their own demons, there are action that force them to be in closer proximity and a friendship was built. This friendship forces both of them out of their comfort zone. Both are like Phoenix raising from the ashes of their demons. This book is unique and left me with tears in my eyes, smiles on my face and even a little bit of steam from anger escaping. Playing With Fire was Narrated by Christian fox and Desiree Ketchum. Christian played the role of West and he was seriously amazing. Desiree Ketchum played the role of Grace and she is so talented and the way she played the role and the insecurities of grace was perfect.

Absolute Perfection

Wow this story was absolutely perfect. It grips you from the very beginning and doesn't let you go. Showcasing how beautiful imperfections can be and that matter what your struggles are you deserve love and happiness. This one touched me so deep, being someone who struggles with depression and feeling like they're not good enough. L.J Shen is such an amazing author. This is a must read for sure.

Uplifting and Absorbing

An excellent Young Adult romance from LJ Shen. I thoroughly enjoyed this story of love and finding redemption. Grace has physical scars and a sad history, while West is self-destructive, messed up and angry. Both quite different people, they had an irrestible pull, and absorbing chemistry and a fearsome love. There are lots of ups and downs in this book. There's sadness, pain, overcoming adversity, and finding your way. It's also about coming to terms with the past, accepting very difficult situations and accepting yourself. An ultimately lovely uplifting ending, out of a hard won romance, I would definitely recommend to readers who love broken hero's and heroine's, enjoy the push and pull of a tumultuous love affair, and can empathise and understand broken people.

LJ Shen At Her Best

Angsty, emotional, tragic, sexy, intense, beautiful. Grace and West are one of my favorite couples from 2020.
